General location model, Advanced Statistics

The model for data containing continuous and categorical variables both.The categorical data are summarized by the contingency table and their marginal distribution, 182by the multinomial distribution. The continuous variables are supposed to have a multivariate normal distribution in which the means of the variables are permitted to vary from cell to cell of the contingency table, but with the variance-covariance matrix of variables being common to all cells. When there is the single categorical variable with two categories the model becomes that supposed by Fisher's linear discriminant analysis.
